Happily Ever Laughter was incredible! Throughout the entire booking process they were extremely communicative and friendly. They accommodated all of our requests and were so easy to work with. Their performers were professional and so very kind, and incredible with the kids. Parents and children loved their performance and enjoyed singing and dancing along. Not only that, but the performers arrived early and stayed later to meet with guests and take photos. I can't express enough what a joy it was to work with this group. I would certainly hire them again.
We had Miss Locket for my daughter’s first birthday party and she did an amazing job!! The kids loved her and had so much fun . I love her beautiful costume, even my daughter was captivated it. I will definitely use happily ever laughter again! Highly recommend having them at your party!
Me. River was entertaining and fun!
Excellent service showed up on time entertain the children had their attention got them involved
Stella was amazing. She was graceful in redirecting the children and obviously very experienced answering any and all fairy questions. My daughter is still talking about it.
The fairy Autumn provided a magic show which spellbound the children for 30 min. She then created a choice of two balloon figures. Everyone was very happy and the birthday girl loved it. They were only disappointed that she didn't use her wings to fly away.
I am so impressed with Happily Ever Laughter. From time of booking up until the day of the party, everything was handled so professionally. They really blew away the other services (venue management and the food caterer) in terms of response and communication.
Princess Ever was amazing. As soon as she came in, all of the kids were 100% mesmerized by her charm. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes, but even the squirmiest and wiggliest kids were motionless when she was doing her magic. It made for such a great time for all of us. Thank you Happily Ever Laughter!
Miss Peach was very entertaining and engaged with the children. The children were mesmerized by her presence! Thank you for making the Birthday Party fabulous.
Was Fantastic and Amazing!!!
Her Magic show, face painting and balloon skills were awesome!!! She made our Granddaughters birthday very special... The children were mesmerized with her magic show!!! Thank you!!! The adults enjoyed the show as well!!
Response from Happily Ever Laughter:
Thank you so much for your kind words! I am thrilled that you enjoyed Miss Fauna's visit; it tickles me positively pink that we were able to help you have an extra special celebration. I've sent your praise over to Fauna - I'm sure it will send her over the moon *smile*.
Have a fantastic summer!
Sunshine and Seashells,
The kids are still talking about her and my daughters party was in December and it is now June! Miss Posie never broke character and emailing these ladies is delightful. I already have her down for my daughter 2nd birthday! I have seen other characters from different companies and they just don't compare.
The smartest thing I've done for a birthday party was to hire Fae!
This company and their characters are unlike any other and the children were completely captivated for 90 minutes!!! On a scale of 1 to 10, the children at my daughter's party (and the parents) gave her a 11.
Here's what different about happily ever laughter:
1) The quality of the character/acting/entertainment. These are NOT your hokie disney types, but more like magical creatures that come to life . Centaur, mermaids, fairies and more! Hard to describe so I suggest watching the videos on her web site to get a better idea.
2) YOU get to pick age appropriate activies and customize with an easy to price/select web site. All of it can be done on-line. What you see on the web site is what you get. So hassle free and worry free. I couldn't do this with the other folks popular around here. Their web site was not designed for this.
3) Here's my favorite part, this company was at least $100 less than the cost of other bay area children's entertainers. I checked daffy you know who and so and so barry you know what and joe smith the musician (I've attended his performances and we were all so uninterested).
4) She's stunningingly beautiful in the mermaid costume, all of it handmade! Our crowd ranged from 0-3 mostly with a few in the 6-8 range and they all sat still for an hour!
What she's not
1) The other 3 well known party entertainers are older men that I know my group of young girls would not be comfortable around. Personally, I found them awkward and my husband found them to be too old and sorry to use this word but too creepy for our crowd.
2) Nickle and dime, charge you for extras. Our agreement was for 3 activities and when there was extra time, Fae threw in a 4th activity, for FREE.
Our daughter just turned 3 and she has been enthralled with Don Bluth's Thumbelina movie for maybe a year. Thus when she asked me months ago whether I'd ever met a fairy, I replied 'no' but 'I'd try to see what I could do'. Enter Miss Meadow, who is everything that the other reviewers have mentioned thus far. In addition to those glowing comments, I'd like to add that her performance was very refreshing in that she was very easy to work with (from an organizer's perspective), she had clearly read all the emailed notes about our daughter's personality and preferences, and she demonstrated a genuine respect for the preschoolers' intellect and limits. The magic show was a lot of fun for all ages and her storyline wove together all the elements, making even the simplest of activities, such as bubble blowing very magical indeed. I don't know if Miss Meadow has ever been an early childhood educator, but she is as good if not better with these kids (ages 2 to 6) as any of the many instructors for classes that my daughter has taken. Quite frankly, my daughter was starting to unravel a bit as our guests filled our home. All that anxiety, however, slowly but surely dissipated under Miss Meadow's spell. She quickly returned to her outgoing and outspoken self. All the other parents were also very pleased and chose to watch Miss Meadow instead of hanging out separately. Well done and money well spent!
Settle in, grab yourself a cup of tea and relax. This is going to a be wordy review.
I have had the pleasure of doing business with Happily Ever Laughter
ever since they opened their doors, ahem...castle.
The first time was when I had a birthday party for myself-Fae showed up, did magic tricks, sang a few songs and generally had me feeling like a kid again. Which considering how stressful adult life can be at times is no easy task. I was laughing, and completely amazed during my birthday party.
And, VERY happy that my friends took a leap of faith and decided that I needed to get in touch with my inner kid self.
Then the company I used to work at (Oracle Corp) booked Fae for a corporate event. I no longer worked there at the time-but was happy to tell previous co-workers to go and watch the show. Of course, they were as amazed I was with the performance.
Lastly, I moved away from California to NYC. So I am far from some of my family on the West Coast.
My niece lives in Colorado-it was her first day of school and I wanted to do something special for her. But, I knew that Colorado was too far for myself or Fae to fly.
So, she Fae did the next best thing. She CALLED my niece and made her first day at school special. She asked her lots of questions, engaged her in conversation and made her excited about starting school. My niece not only had a fabulous first day at school, but she also had a great story to share with the other children. I still hear about that call and it was well over a year ago!
This kind of service, thoughtfulness, kindness, sincerity and creativity
is rare in the world. Happily Ever Laughter is by far the best of the best.
I look forward to the next time I will be delighted by them.
booked happily ever laughter for a large party with almost 100 guests with 20 kids. fae was very responsive making the booking process fast, concise and easy for me to get down to business so i could spend more cycles on other aspects of the event. her suggestions and followup were precise. fairy meadow was also very thorough touching base with me a few days before the event for final planning.
fairy meadow did an amazing job with the children. when many of the kids first arrived, they were scared being in a large restaurant with so many adults. the kids were clinging to their parents and burying their faces in their parents' chests. by the 15 minute mark of our event, miss meadow had completely transformed the scene. little boys were jumping around giggling with glee slashing their sword balloons. fathers were circling taking pictures of their kids laughing and waving butterfly balloons in the air. some fathers and mothers were playing sword balloons with their kids. a whole train of little kids with balloons were following the fairy back and forth across the room with big smiles on their faces. little kids were taking balloons and cupcakes to their parents.
the parents at our party were so happy. they told us they were impressed with how well miss meadow engaged the children. it gave them time to eat their lunch. another parent said their daughter would be on cloud 9 the rest of the day. parents came up to me asking for the name of the children's entertainer company so they could book them for future events for their own kids. even adults at the event who didnt bring kids were talking about how cute the fairy was with all the little children.
during the planning stages of the event, my kid's grandmother and my hubby werent so sure if it was a good idea to book the fairy but after seeing the effect miss meadow had on the children today and after hearing all the compliments from other parents, they both agreed it was one of the best parts of the party.

~ 100% Arrival Guarantee ~
When the big day comes, there is no room for any extra stress. Our staff of 50 gives us the flexibility to have back-up in any emergency. If we’re invited, we will get there.
In the past, we’ve gone through great lengths to visit 16,000 celebrations despite weather, illness, or the dozens of other reasons that can bring a celebration to a halt. From flying hundreds of miles to cover a sick performer, to walking over a mile in the rain in a mermaid tail when the road was closed, we are notorious for ‘making it happen’. Around here, the show must go on.
If your Performer breaks our 12 year streak of pulling off the impossible to reach your event and fails to arrive, we will refund your show, AND give you $250 in cash to spend on whatever you like.
~ Zero traveling fees ~
Our Employees are located all over California in order to be closer to you! That’s how we avoid charging for travel.
~ 24 hour live phone support ~
Business hours don’t apply when you’re booked in our calendar. Our magic is available to you ’round the clock.
You’ll have access to our secret ‘Emergency Line’ phone number a few days before your celebration, just in case you need to get a hold of us for things like a last minute location change, or other urgent issue. We know you want to relax on the big day, and we have the behind-the-scenes support to make sure that happens.
~ Full liability insurance ~
Our Performers are employees of Happily Ever Laughter (we don’t hire out independent contractors), and are covered by our liability and worker’s compensation policies, just in case our magic is a bit too powerful! *laugh*
~ Phone Introduction ~
Your Fairytale Character will call you a couple days before your celebration so you can ‘meet’ over the phone before the big day! This is helpful for making sure all the details are picture perfect.
Fae asked a single question when she started Happily Ever Laughter:
“As the performing arts are being stripped from our schools, can I inspire children by bringing the arts directly to them?”
With a deep understanding of how to relate to children, a barrier-breaking cast of playful arts providers, and dedication to treating employees fairly, she set out to do just that, one child at a time.
Fae has now grown Happily Ever Laughter to be able to play with 100,000 children during 4,000 parties for corporations, private families, and cities each year.
All of our shows include:
~ 100% Arrival Guarantee ~
On the extremely rare occasion that we* have to cancel within 30 days of your event, we will refund you & give you a free show for the future.

Fairy Fae flew into our daughter's 7th birthday party and kept the girls' completely entertained and enchanted for an hour and a half. Her magic was wonderful and the girls couldn't believe how she could keep making so many different things appear out of thin air. Of course, they also loved the imaginative sparkley face painting and the balloon toys. But most of all, they were so excited to have met and conversed with a real fairy. These girls put Fae to the test and she passed with flying colors.
We would highly recommend having Fae come to your party - she was absolutely perfect.
Have a great day!
“Melodie was absolutely wonderful!!!! She's really good at keeping the kids captivated. Thank you so much for keeping up with my nagging questions and indecisiveness .... It could not have been any better!”
First of all...you did an amazing job. i hope i let you know that!! i was a little preoccupied with the thousands of people in my home. but...i was so happy with EVERYTHING you did. take care. i am sure you will hear from us again!
We had such a wonderful time with Miss Fairy Maple. :) My daughter has slept with her special butterfly gift every night since the party. I had a few other people ask me where I found her, so I gave them the wesite I found you on. Kaya (my daughter) said that she wanted her back for her next birthday!! Thank you for the wonderful performance and face painting.
Nixie was great!!! The kids loved her and Lilah was so happy to have a real fairy at her party. I have to give Nixie credit because she had all the adults watching her as well as the children and she didn't seem nervous at all. I think you'll be getting calls from some of the other parents for future birthday parties. Thanks again for a wonderful party.
You'll most likely hear from me again next March. Take care.
